February 14th, Valentines Day!!!

Need an inexpensive idea for a romantic Valentine's Day?

Shalee has set up Mr. Linky for you to check out numerous ideas for a romantic Valentine's Day! After reading mine go on over and find one that will work for you!

Although my husband and I are in our mid 50's and our children are grown, we still enjoy any time we can have together away from the stress and pressures of our jobs and activities. If we are needing time away and our budget is limited we get in our truck and head to Wendy's.

Well first of all who doesn't like their Frosty's!!

We go to the drive-thru and order a regular Jr. hamburger, regular fries, I get a sodie (that's soda to some of you), and then two large Frosty's. All this for less than $9.00! The Wendy's we go to is joining a grocery store parking lot on a hillside. We find a parking spot away from the other cars and sit and enjoy our meal. What we like about this is that we aren't as distracted from the goings on in the restaurant so we really LISTEN to each other and enjoy the conversation. It just seems more relaxing and "young" I guess. We can laugh and stuff and people aren't looking at you wondering if we're laughing at them.

Sometimes in the summer we do this 2-3 times a week. Well it may be more for the Frosty after the 2nd time!!

For more great ideas go here.

Thanks Shalee for this great way of sharing ideas!

Cheryl - this is a fabulous idea! Being one on one with your mate without all the distraction of people... And you're right. Who doesn't enjoy a good Frosty.

Thank you so much for sharing your great idea.

Lucky... 2-3 times a week!! I'm lucky just to be in the same room with my man that often...

All I can say is that I'm enjoying where I'm at right now in my life, but I also look forward to being able to do things like that too.

Wow! I am jealous of the 2-3 times a week as well, but I think the idea of just sitting in the car talking is great! Thanks!

I love Wendy's frostys and usually just the small one works for me. :) Great suggestion!

So, if you're looking for Valentine's Day cooking ideas, I’d love it if you’d participate in my Favorite Ingredients Friday- Valentine’s Day chocolate edition recipe exchange that I’m hosting this Friday! :)
